Manual Wheelchair Webinar FAQs

Manual Wheelchair Webinar FAQs

In April and May of this year, the clinical educators from Sunrise Medical came together to deliver a 6-part, live, webinar series globally. The webinar topics included the mat evaluation, seating, head supports, manual wheelchairs, power seating functions and alternative drive controls. I presented the webinar on Manual Wheelchairs: Optimizing Prescription and Set Up earlier this month. The webinar was one hour in length and had hundreds and hundreds of participants from numerous countries. This meant that not all of the questions that were posed during the webinar could be answered during that time. Following the webinar, I responded to the questions via email. It became apparent that there were many frequently asked questions (FAQs). This month's Clinical Corner will share the FAQs and answers to the manual wheelchair webinar I presented.
